Based on what I've seen of the S710, it looks like my replacement for my trusty C500 will be the S730 3G/HSDPA version. I take it the cameras don't have autofocus - I don't care what resolution a camera is, but if you can't focus it it's surprisingly useless for me.

It's a shame I don't like slider phones cos the G500 looks pretty decent and I've read that Toshiba have included a few extra features when you use the phone in conjunction with a laptop (such acting as a slideshow control).

After having a good run with my Qtek 8310 it was time to look around again and my needs were answered by the excellent video (Nice Work Paul!)

So of I go to dig up all the details of the rather lurvely looking HTC S710.. then dismay hit me when I realised that this unit does not have HSDPA.. :D not even UMTS ;)

Come on HTC its a nice phone compact with good looks, WM 6.0 a thumpad etc etc.. but why stick with GPRS and EDGE?

I guess I will have to wait for the Imate 8150 (If it actually turns out to be the size they claim!) unless there is something else out there that would replace my 8310 that is compact has Wifi and at least normal 3G.

I know this is slightly off track for this post but can anyone make a suggestion as to what could be viable replacment for my Qtek?


Hmm looks like my moans were answered in the post above (nice one HTC) anyone got pics of the s730 ?

Damn, that looks like a damn fine device.

I could well be tempted to replace my Hermes device when this thing hits the street.

Well about that symbian sh*t to motorola :) Tre (Three) was "giving" away phones at a cost of 67$, no more costs, thats it 67$ and no more. The best phone they had was motorla A925, so i bought it. I think i will use it as a GPS unit :) Becuse it have inbuilt GPS :)

I expect September. It hasn't made it to the HTC website. Also, with HTC products, street dates have been 1-2 months after the "release" date, which pdadb puts at July.

Even more offtopic, who runs pdadb.net? How do they make money? (I disabled adblock, and I don't see any ads on the site).

They licence their DB, for vast amounts of money ;)

I spoke to them about using it on MoDaCo, but unfortunately it was too expensive so we'll build our own :D

Very good vid, i do like the 710, might be looking at it as an upgrade

I did find a sight that did vids for testing computer stuff called www.3dgameman.com , it does help alot when deciding if something is worth it, i would like to see more on this site.

The man in T-Mobile in Exeter, Devon said they had a Win Mobile 6 phone coming out soon, that might be the one.

Photos to come too.

BTW, if you point your device at http://soapbox.msn.com/mobile and search for 'S710', you should find this vid and be able to play it on your device! (connection allowing)

Slightly off-topic I guess but

I can only get audio - no video from this.

Any ideas please?

Cool video Paul! Is it possible to download it somewehere?

Also im thinking about moving to the HTC S620 from a Nokia E61 (missing windows mobile) do you think it's a good idea or should I wait for the cavalier?

If you're getting only audio, you may need to update your flash player (new video format in flash 8 compared to 7, but same mp3 audio).

That G500 looks very nice... except the camera looks *awful*! anyone agree?

Videos are great paul, we'd all love to seem them be regular. Maybe name them MoDaCast? ;) hehe

Thanks Paul. Something fun to watch and have on my computer ;) I don't really need 3G so a S620 will most probably be purchased next week .
Is there any programs you recommend for it?

I'd love to see a video of the Ameo. It's my favourite at the moment. If only it had WM6, i'd be on my way to the T-Mobile shop now!
